My great grandmother made each of her 14 great grandchildren a felt pieced stocking. Each one was came from a kit, but was hand stitched, embellished with beads and sequins.
These served as an inspiration for my own children’s stockings. It is not my style to use a kit, so I designed stockings that suited my children’s personalities.
Using an applique technique, I used cut wool felt and other elements to create a winter scene on each stocking. My Granny would be pleased to see someone carrying on her tradition of handmade stockings.
What traditions are you carrying on this holiday? Do tell!
